Has anyone else noticed this from Arlen Specter? Bloomberg reports that Sen. Specter has urged Bush to delay the nomination for OConnors seat on the Court because OConnor is prepared to stay on for a while longer. The senator knows this because he has talked to OConnor. Isnt this an outrage, for a number of reasons? On the most human level, I thought that OConnor needed to resign so she could take care of her ailing husband. This means nothing to Specter. Also, what right does Specter have to negotiate with a sitting justice about these matters? Also note this: "Specter said the delay would give Congress and the rest of America more time to know John Roberts as chief justice. When we know a little more about Judge Roberts its going to be easier with the next nomination, Specter said." Am I wrong to think that all this is outrageous?
